Cayman S 987 jacking points

Hi everyone, im having trouble trying to work out where I can jack up my cayman 987 using axle stands as once I’ve raised it on the jacking point there’s no where to put the axle stand, having tyres fitted by a someone, and painting my hubs etc, whilst wheels are off so idealy would rather not have it left on jacks. 
Thanks

    If I want the front in the air, I jack up the rear at the jacking point, which raises the whole of one side, so also raises the front. Then put an axle stand under the front jacking point. Lower the jack (at the rear), leaving the front on the stand. Do the opposite if you want the rear in the air. I realise that if you want more than one corner in the air at the same time, then this approach won't work.
     
    Cheers,

    Hi, thanks for the advise everyone.  I managed to get it jacked up as suggested on the first link.
    Just next to the factory jacking points there is enough support to Jack the car at the sill then get the axle stand under the jacking point. 
    Thanks

    There is a strong support point in the middle of the car at the rear.
    jack up the front (at rear jack points) and secure, then run a trolley jack underneath car from the exhaust.
    you’ll find the support rearward of the engine and you can lift the rear of the car and get stands underneath, Viola!
